Brake bleeding

My ezeeibleed works fine, but here's another way if you are on your own, I have a non return valve off an old windscreen washer system on the end of a tube. Works fine.

It worked very well for me

It worked very well for me. As said above, make sure the pressure is right.

I also used it to fill the gearbox oil in the V6 6speed

When using an eezibleed I find it far less messy to use without fluid in the bottle, just using the air pressure and the fluid in the car reservoir. One problem with them is that if you do put fluid in the bottle it leaves the reservoir full to the brim so you have to get rid of it by opening a bleed nipple again. Also I don't like swapping brake fluid around from one container to another.

Good luck

Ha ha I just finished doing mine after fitting new front pads and discs.
Works well, if you make sure that the tube in the supplied reservoir is placed into the fresh fluid.
I was scratching my head wondering why it was just blowing air into the car's reservoir and not replenishing it.
Now it's all working well with a nice firm pedal action.
